Summer is here! – How to protect your skin .

Since we’ve been at home for about three months if feels like summer arrived without us even noticing. However, the high temperatures are here and we need to take care of our body, specially our skin. We’ve decided to give you our top 5 tips to keep your skin radiant this summer, whether you are staying home or you have plans to visit the Riviera Maya. 

Make friends with H20

Higher temperatures, wearing a facemask when going outside and just spending some  time at the beach or even your terrace leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches and dizzy spells!

Avoid dehydration by drinking a minimum of eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification. Tip: If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink!

If you are chilling at the beach in Tulum, order some coconut water!. Coconut water has natural electrolytes to keep you hydrated, this is a great option containing natural sugars. 

Add Antioxidants to your beauty regime & diet. 

You can include antioxidants in your skin care regimen by adding them to your diet, so the summer is the perfect time to add some citrus fruits, green and leafy vegetables, green tea, nuts, and whole grains to your meals and have younger looking skin.

Time to scrub – Exfoliate! 

Most of the year dermatologist recommend not to over-exfoliate, but summertime it’s the season to scrub away. If you have oily skin,incorporating an exfoliator into your skin-care routine would be super beneficial, check out some DIY scrub recipes or head down to the beach and let the sand work its magic. 

Keep your skin hydrated

You can improve your hydration regimen with intensive face masques, perfect for use one to two times a week. Boosters are a great fit, working best when layered underneath a moisturizer. Toners are a refreshing moisturizer prep, working to even out skin porosity. 

Top Tip: Refresh with a revitalizing toner spritz at your desk, in the car, at the gym, beach bag, on the plane!

Protect your skin!

Dreamed wedding in Mayakoba

We always love sharing real weddings and we recently had the honor to be part of a Olessya & Diego’s wedding in Mayakoba.

It was such an amazing destination wedding, the guest came from all over the world (Canada, Russia, Mexico), quite a multicultural wedding (just like Playa del Carmen)

For this blog we decided to do a quick interview to our gorgeous bride Olessya. We hope you enjoy it and it inspires you plan your destination wedding in the Mexican Caribbean!

Where did you two meet?

We met at University in 2014 and have been together since then. The proposal took place in January 2019 in our apartment. The groom served dinner and called the dog into the dining room because the ring was attached to the dog’s collar.

Tell us about the inspiration for your big day. (colour scheme, decor, etc)

Our colours were mainly white and Rose Gold with a touch of pastel. We chose those colours because we wanted to give the impression of elegancy with minimalistic

You looked like a princess! Can you tell us about your wedding dress?

 I went to the most popular Russian wedding dress store called Mary Trufel located in Moscow. (Instagram: marytrufel_official). I did flew to Moscow to tried it and purchased the dress. I picked the Rara Avis wedding dress – princess style named Elba. 

We had so much fun taking care of you and your bridesmaids! Can you tell me more about them?

 I had 3 bridesmaids. Vita my older sister, Vika my best friend since we were 14 and Liza an old family friend.

It was definitely a dreamed wedding! Please describe your top 5 moments.

#5: Getting ready. I had so much fun sharing the time when we were getting ready. We got to share emotions, feelings, jokes and wine. 

  #4: Speeches. I like this time personally because I got to know my friends and Diego’s friends from a different perspective. Some of those words I did not expect myself.   

  #3: The dance. We practice for over 2 months, we went to classes in order to look somewhat decent. During our performance we were so nervous that we improvise and we were having so much fun because nobody knew what was improvised and what not.   

#2: The ceremony. I felt like in a Disney’s movie because it was beautifully set up, it was delivered in 3 languages and that I never felt so happy and so nervous at the same time. I felt that it was in a dream. 

#1. The first look. See each other for the first time, both of us beautifully dressed up. The feeling that I made the right choice and that we were going to spend the rest of our lives with the person we loved. It was so emotional because we crying and connected at an emotional level.
